Globalisation in Surgery

 Health and well-being are increasingly seen as key features of what constitutes a successful society and a vibrant economy in the 21st century. However, although frequently referenced, global health is rarely defined. In our initiative, we are aiming to generate consistency in the surgical service provided to all human beings everywhere.

Shoulder Arthroplasty

In this study, we are comparing the currently available implants based on the published evidence. There are different forms of available implants with various philosophies. we have just published one of the biggest follow-ups published so far in shoulder replacements with a minimum of five years follow-up.


COVID19 and Surgery

Professor Imam is the principle investigator of the COVID19 Global Surgical Response (CGSR) trial; we also are leading  a group of scientist and physicians in two more studies. One looking at the use of Virtual clinics and artificial inteligince in orthopaedics and one looking at the hazards of operative interventions during the Pandemic.


Shoulder Instability

After publishing a study comparing two surgical options for recurrent shoulder instability in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, the top-ranked orthopaedic journal, now we are comparing all available surgical options for the management of this common problem. 


Lateral Epicondylitis Study

We are currently finalising a study comparing different operative and Non-operative options for management of lateral epicondylitis of the elbow, also known as Tennis Elbow.

Hip Fractures outcomes

In multiple studies, we have published, we have looked at different aspects of hip fractures in the elderly. We are still analysing different aspects of managing this crucial medical emergency. 


Artificial and Machine Intelligence in Surgery

The Smart Health Research group in the University of East London where Professor Imam has his chair aim at improving patients outcomes after surgical procedures utilising up-to-date technological advances in AI and MI.


Rotator cuff tears

Rotator cuff tears are a common problem. We have just published the results of our clinical trial comparing different repair techniques in the Journal of shoulder and elbow surgery. We are assessing the expectations of rotator cuff patients, different techniques and implants as well as the innovative techniques in managing this problem.
